Construction of schooling infrastructures
In 2014, Mai Nha funded and built a kindergarten for the children of the village of Thien Nghiep in association with Cargill Vietnam, a renowned US based company (A total investment of USD 50.000). The three class room school which is located next to the Mai Nha family homes, hosts 120 children.
At the end of 2017, we started the construction of a small study and personal development building for the children of Mai Nha where they can do their home work, paint, play music and engage in manual activities such as cooking, dancing, etc. The building was put into use since the beginning of 2018 and has become the children's favourite place in Mai Nha in no time. The investment amounts is USD 35.000.
Granting of scholarships
Over the past 10 years, Mai Nha has granted over 900 scholarships to underprivileged children of the village. The beneficiaries ( elementary, mid-school, high school and university students) are identified and selected in close cooperation with the school heads based on the financial situation of each family.
A bike to go to school
To be pragmatic and practical means providing solutions to very specific problems : Mai Nha has donated 35 bicycles to children living too far from school for them to walk to. Also, Mai Nha donated 4 years ago a wheel chair and a dedicated nannie for little Nana, 4 years old at that time, handicapped from waist down, so she could attend school like all children her age instead of staying home doing nothing. She now attends elementary school and doesn’t need a dedicated nannie anymore.
